Displays the current value of a numeric control as you move the slider or needle.

If TRUE (default), LabVIEW displays the value of a numeric control in a tip strip as you move the slider or needle of a slide or rotary control. The tip strip uses the same format and precision as the digital display of the control. If the control has more than one digital display, the tip strip uses the format and precision of the digital display that corresponds to the currently active needle or slider.

This property is similar to the Show tip strips option on the Appearance page of the Properties dialog box.
